AZbox (mini)Me

Flashing AZBox Me/miniMe

Be sure you have downloaded the right firmware from our downloadpage.
Also, be sure that your AZBox (mini)ME is connected to the network.

NOTE:
In this tutorial, we will install OpenRSi, including the kernel, which you will find on our downloadpage, to boot-partition BOOT0. However, feel free to install it on any other partition of your choice.

First step

  • Flip the powerswitch at the back of you AZBox (mini)ME.
  • Press the POWER button on you remote control.
  • If your display shows the message ‘VFD Ready‘, hold the Volume+ key on your remote control, until an IP address is shown in the display.

Installing the firmware

  • Open your favorite web browser, like Firefox/Chrome/IE, and type in the shown IP address.
    The following screen will be shown.

  • Click on firmware upgrade (BOOT0).

  • Click on Choosing File and select the Firmware file you have downloaded from our downloadpage and press OK.

  • After you have selected the firmware, click on the Upload button. The firmware will now be copied to your AZBox mini(ME). When this process is finished, a new webpage will appear.

  • Select the Reboot option and click the Flash button.
  • The AZBox mini(ME) will now be installed with the new firmware, using BOOT0. The installation will take just a few seconds, after which the AZBox (mini)Me will reboot and start with the new firmware.

First boot

  • As soon as the display on your AZBox shows the message VFD Ready, press and hold the numeric key on your remote control, which corresponds with the boot-partition you installed the firmware on.
    So, if you installed the firmware on BOOT0, press ‘0‘. If you installed the firmware on BOOT1, then press ‘1‘. And so on.
  • Your AZBox will now boot from partition BOOTx, on which OpenRSi is installed.

NOTE:
Keep in mind that the receiver remembers what partition it booted from. So, next time you start your AZBox, it will start from that same partition.
